Pop-Up Week #4-A

Posted on October 20th, 2021
Time to grab a box for next week! We can't say for sure that this will be our last Farm Stand box opportunity, but it might be and it is will certainly be the most diverse one left as we have all of our root vegetables available! Don't miss out on our bulk opportunities: carrots, beets, parsnips, r1 read more »

Pop Up #4-B

This week, work on the farm has fallen into two categories. Bagging our storage roots is no small task with over 1400lbs of roots to be packaged into 2 to 5lb. bags. We called in the packing crew (Rita & Barry) and even had some help from Bonnie's Dad, Mike, so we got the task done in record ti1 read more »

Well, that's a wrap...in terms of markets. The final Farmers Market at Libby was this past Thursday and it was a great one. We really appreciate all of the folks who were able to come out and support their local producers. BUT, it's not a wrap yet in terms of Farm Stand boxes. This will be our firs1 read more »

The season's, they are a'changing...it sure does feel that way today anyway, it's a windy day and it seems that the wind is bringing fall with it. Another freeze warning tonight and for the next several nights. This one might really do the dahlias in for good this time - but they've put up a very g1 read more »

Pop-Up Week #2-A

A day of experimentation on the farm today. First off, we have several beds of beets that we'd really like to size up so that we can harvest them along with our carrots and turnips in a few weeks for winter storage roots. But they're just really lagging, so we put some row cover over them (even tho1 read more »

See you all at pick up this week! This is the last Farmers Market of the season, so we're busy preparing for that. It'll be nice to start to slow down as we've had a pretty fast and furious season and we're TIRED. We'll be continuing with boxes and will still have a pick up option in Libby even tho1 read more »

Pop-Up Week #1-A

Hi All - This is our first 'Pop-Up' Farm Stand of the season. Thus far, all of the Farm Stand boxes that we have done have been in addition to our CSA, which ended today. So, with the temps cooling and the daylight hours waning, the total number of boxes that we put out each week will also be on th1 read more »

Finished the onions! Over 2,000 lbs of red & yellow storage onions finally cured and trimmed - it's time to stock up! We're looking forward to a great market day tomorrow and it looks like Mother Nature wants to cooperate as it's looking like 75 and sunny. Don't forget to swing by your pick up1 read more »

CSA Week #18-A

Posted on September 15th, 2021
Hi All - It's here, week #18 and the final week of the CSA season! We will likely continue to do some Farm Stand boxes for another few weeks, but it will be a far cry from the 70+ boxes that we have been packing during the main season. You know what that means, right? It's time to get into your Har1 read more »
